The player is in a dark forest. The only hint is a placard nailed to a tree, with a warning: anyone seeking the Orb will meet a fitting end, signed King Aken by his Lord Lieutenant K'vin. Further exploration reveals a stone pedestal, a log cabin, and a dark cave. Exploring the cave without a light source will result in certain death by a yallou. It's up to the player to figure out how to proceed.

Mines of Qyntarr was actually the third chapter in a planned series of six Usurper games; as it turns out, the only one ever released. Sir-Tech's reasoning behind releasing the third game first was lost along with the remainder of the series.
